I have moved quite a lot in my life. If I told you I moved more than 30 times.. you would call me mad, but I have! I like new adventures and putting a new nest together. I have no kid so it is easy for me. I have lived in 6 districts of Paris (6th, 10th, 14th, 15th, 17th and 19th). I started to gather all the pictures I could found and I was happy to see that all my stuff have followed and match in every different places.
As a personal work I will start writing this new column tagged #myhomesmylife, compiling photos on details (I love details) and rooms. Shall we start with the BEDROOMS…
From 2005 to 2009, living Cité Lemercier in the 17th district of Paris in a 50m2 studio on a large garden, my bedroom was separated by a wall from the rest of the surface. Lots of lights coming from the glass wall. I was keen on Mohair and still have this fuchsia mohair blanket by Brun De Vian-Tiran. The flat was so filled with light and opened that I could only say on a white wall basis and choose pink as the red line.
From 2009 to 2012 in the 15th district, I was lucky to live on a 60’s rooftop flat with a large terrace all around on the 9th floor facing the Eiffel Tower. It was a 3 rooms flat of 70 M2 and the terrace was 40m2 (a real luxury in Paris). At that time I went bold colors. My bedrooms was totally dark navy blue (even the ceiling). A real nest. The Swan by Tamar Mogendorff showed up then and had never been left behind since. I painted with white ( one being the opposite of the other) the pair of wicker chairs I bought in the 2000’s at Ikea’s. still there too.
In 2012 I moved to La Butte Bergeyre. A place to see in Paris. That time it was a crush. A brick house from the 30’s on the top of a hill. A rehabilitated loft with class ceiling and large windows, a duplex with 2 bedrooms. I went for white walls and raw materials. Still my Swan and the wicker chairs. And I started to collect linen bedding in earthy colors (most of them come from Secret Maison)
All photos are mine.
